    Eternal truths- So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. If God be for us, who can be against us?

    Romans 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: JESUS NEVER SINNED. Glory be to God for his only begotten Son that died for our sins and rose from the dead three days.

    I am not full of praise for you but criticism for your sing a song and feel his blessing. Not real conversion but phoney Christians like Pense. Sick. God demands more if not everything. What you say, what you do, how you are, whst you feel, in shirt everything. Anybody can dummy up a blissful smile and say praise, praise, but not everyone can please God. He is real and does not fall for lies
